What We Do
We facilitate and participate in inter-community exchanges with our international partner cities.
We promote harmony and awareness of our common human experience.
We are dedicated group of volunteers, operating a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, that seek to promote peace, hope, and human connections through citizen diplomacy. As part of that mission, we identify and select international partner cities that share Fountain Hill’s community values, family heritage, as well as cultural, geographic, and demographic similarities. And then we work to establish city-to-city partnership agreements that enable and foster inter-community exchanges of the types listed below. Exchanges of ideas and actions are key, as they establish and promote the common good of Fountain Hills, and its chosen partner cities. These mutually beneficial city-to-city relationships, maintained through bi-directional exchanges between Fountain Hills and our partner cities, are intended to last a lifetime and promote cross-boundary improvement of the human condition, with awareness and appreciation of our collective international community being the outcome. A shared respect beyond what governments alone can achieve.
